Fort Worth ISD Board Ditches Ethics for Cash

Posted by |

The Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) Board had an ethics policy with teeth, but it didn’t last long.  It appears board officials just couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to potentially cash in on the massive $750 Million school bond.

The school board adopted a strong ethics policy in April of this year, but abruptly ditched it a few months later in August. Conveniently for elected officials, this alarming change was made only six days before the board voted to put a $750 million bond package on the November ballot.

The Democrats Are Coming! Oh No!

Posted by |

I’m told the Democrats are coming.

I hear of fancy groups like InDivisible, BLM, and others targeting Tarrant County and Texas to turn them blue.

I see that every Tarrant County elected Republican has an announced Democrat opponent (except Glen Whitley and one might argue he is their candidate).

The bell has been rung. Indeed they are coming for each and every red county and state they can get, just as we should be going after each and every blue county we can….but we aren’t.

The prize for democrats is to take back SD10, currently held by rockstar Republican Konni Burton. That’s their crowning achievement goal, but they are running candidates in all the lower ballot races as well. We might lose some of those.

Make no mistake, however, if we lose SD10 or any of the lower ballot seats it is NOT because the Democrats are coming.

The Ritchie Scandal – There’s an Audit

Posted by |

Another Tarrant County official is under fire from county auditors for alleged violations of state law. But unlike Democrat Constable Ruben Garcia’s recent scandal, it appears the local District Attorney’s office is taking action to prosecute either a judge, his staffer, or both.

Last week we unveiled Garcia’s scandal, which involved several possible violations of state law, including failure to document drugs and other property seized, along with cash collected by field deputies. Shockingly, Ritchie’s audit revealed alleged offenses similar to the Garcia scandal. while the laundry list of offenses documented in Garcia’s audit was lengthy, Ritchie’s is even longer.

Harrison County Brings Current OAG Investigation Count to Three!

Posted by |

Direct Action Texas has been notified that investigators with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) have been spotted in Harrison County. This brings the total number of ongoing investigations due to DAT complaints of vote irregularities to three separate counties.

Last year ,  Direct Action Texas found that 19.29% of all the votes in the Hill County Republican primary lacked voters to correspond with the alleged votes. Those ballots have been seized by the AG’s office and an investigation is ongoing.

The Tarrant County investigation has been described as the largest voter fraud investigation the state has seen. Mr. Harris, the executive director of DAT, claimed that numerous elected officials in Tarrant County, including a state representative, have been involved in what is referred to as a vote harvesting operation. DAT’s investigation has uncovered tens of thousands of these harvested ballots. The operation is similar to the activities uncovered in Hidalgo and Cameron Counties back in 2011-12. That investigation resulted in numerous felony convictions. While the Tarrant County operation is similar to that of the valley, the scope is much larger.

Late in 2016,  DAT received a tip of vote harvesting in Harrison County, located in far East Texas. After a brief investigation, DAT referred it to the Secretary of State, who referred it to the OAG. Earlier this week, agents from the OAG were spotted around Harrison County, including the county elections office.

“The fact that our work has resulted in three ongoing investigations makes me proud of our team and the quality of our work, ” said Aaron Harris. “We are not aware of any organization who has uncovered this much election fraud, much less in such a short period of time. To those committing these crimes – the gig is up, ” he continued.

DAT is currently investigating vote harvesting in  Dallas County, which has already uncovered the involvement of both currently and previously elected officials. “This investigation is very promising and appears that it may be our largest investigation yet.”

Stay tuned.
